MacGourmet Deluxe 4.2 is released

Yesterday we released MacGourmet Deluxe 4.2 which fixes the import issue we have had for several weeks. I won’t go into detail on what a massive undertaking this was (in a nutshell, MacGourmet is now parsing the data from recipe web sites _within_ the app opposed to using the third party software), but needless-to-say, it […]

MacJournal Goes to Wisconsin

I gave a confession to make and I hope is that my boss doesn’t read the first part of this. I am not a MacJournal user. That doesn’t mean I don’t know anything about it nor does it mean that I don’t use it. I am just not a user of MacJournal. I do keep […]

Style is back with Yosemite

Whoever suggested using Helvetica in Yosemite deserves a raise. The one who suggested adding more color should get a raise too. After the dull, gray, blue-gray, lifelessness of Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks, I am now happily living in Yosemite. The icons, even though they sport a mostly flat design, are given a bit more […]

March, it came in like a lion

You know the saying, “March comes in like a lion but goes out like a lamb” don’t you? It’s that weather related analogy to illustrate the tempestuous way that March makes its appearance. Well, Mariner’s March certainly came around in an equally turbulent fashion – in the form of some significant server and ISP issues. […]

Beginning your Paperless journey

This is a picture of my desk. It is almost pathologically clean. It wasn’t always like that. Seriously. My desk had stacking trays filled with paper. I had those organizers where you stack file folders. I even had a set of some file organizers from Ikea that I bought at an impossible price. Here’s where […]

Backing Up

-by Mariner Teresa BACK UP. BACK UP. BACK UP. I just delivered the worst news ever. “Because you do not have a back up of the contents of your hard drive, your data is lost and there is nothing we can do for you.” So sorry! Even though it is February and the time for […]

Happy Birthday, Mac!

-by Mariner Teresa It’s all the news today – 30 years ago the Mac was born. It would be fair to say that Steve Jobs had a vision. The thing is, I doubt that his vision could have taken him as far as where reality has brought us. No one is that kind of visionary. […]

What will motivate you in 2014?

-by Mariner Teresa I recently read a blog post from a well-known and influential marketer. It was a post that emphasized being productive and being challenged. His call to action was to pick colleagues, bosses, or family members who would challenge us. To find books that do the same. He then proceeded to name the […]

Apple, I thought I knew ye: where’s my iWatch?

-by Mariner Teresa I was watching Dancing with the Stars a few weeks ago and I nearly had to call 911, and it wasn’t because of Corbin’s Paso Doble, it was because of the commercial that came afterward. In an earlier post, I wrote about Apple’s pending release of the new iOS 7. I wasn’t […]

Look out London!

-by Mariner Teresa We have customers all over the world with the largest international following in the United Kingdom, but there’s something the good citizens across the pond need to know. You’re being invaded. No, not that kind of invasion, heaven knows you’ve been through enough. This is a an invasion of the technical kind […]
